Regiment Diaries

The Indian Army is more than just a government wing or a fighting force that guards our borders. The Indian Army is an emotion, a living chronicle of times, events, and incidents that we have the luxury to forget because they remember. A fierce force that physically binds the nation together, the army itself is a family of several regiments. Some have seen the rise and fall of empires and others which are yet to attain the full vigour of youth. Each regiment has its own history and glorious traditions. Each one has its own identity, values, and morals that bring people from different parts of the country and hold them together in bonds stronger than that of blood. Regiment Diaries is more than a compilation of war stories. It is a tale of the Indian Army unlike any told before. Told by the very men who follow the illustrious feats of their predecessors, Regiment Diaries tells us timeless tales that warm the hearts, moisten the eyes, and leave you in even greater awe of the bravest children of India.
